An easy way for children to put their own distinctive stamp on a room is with framed works. Children are thrilled to display their artwork or have family photos or treasures on the walls. Here are some ideas – your local professional framer can help you come up with many more that will fit within your budget and your imagination! (A professional framer also can advise on the use of safe materials and safe, secure ways to install and hang frames and shadow boxes.)
Frame your children’s favorite drawings and paintings to preserve them from getting lost or damaged over time. Forget the fridge – give these creations pride of place on the wall! Once your fledglings fly the family nest, it’s wonderful to have a little piece of their childhood preserved.
Include children in the design process. Take them to your local professional picture framer, where they can help pick out the frame moulding and mat board colors.
A professional framer will be happy to help you and your children work out a design for framing pictures and world or regional maps, perhaps with postcards and mementoes of vacations.
A framer can suggest items to make an interesting shadow box – e.g., sports jerseys, medals, ribbons, photos and certificates, baby shoes, musical instruments, the winning baseball, and much more.
When it comes to preserving a special memory for your children, a professional framer has the skills to organize your treasures into an eye-catching arrangement and will use preservation-grade materials to protect those special keepsakes!
